In a shocking move, Rear Adm. Collin Green, head of Naval Special Warfare Command, the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, and Command Master Chief of SEAL Team 7 have been fired. The team was kicked out if Iraq this summer after allegations of alcohol abuse and sexual assault.

The Special Operations units, especially the SEAL Teams have been under fire lately for everything from alcohol fueled parties in Iraq, to murder in Mali. The Navy has said they are taking steps to rein their teams in, including returning to basic discipline standards.

Almost all of SOCOM has let professionalism, once the absolute mainstay of the trade, slip away. It's been replaced by bravado, narcissism, and murderous intent.

I'd love to see charges, not just firings, but it's a start.

Mali? Is there just one country where we don't have troops?

There are a lot of countries we don't have troops. They're in Mali assisting the government forces with training and improving their capabilities.

And this benefits the US taxpayer how?

If we didn't have to have troops in Mali for the first 225 years of our nation's existence, why do we have to have them there now?

Having stable countries benefits everyone. The more stable Mali is, the less likely of people that want to kill lots of innocent people(yes, they really do exist) are to hide there. Mali has been unstable and getting worse. Villages are being attacked, places where tourists gather are being attacked...

We didn't have troops there "the first 225 years of our countries existence" because the world wasn't connected the way it is now. There is an international force in Mali and has been for years.

Cry me a river. Boo-hoo-hoo! Bring the troops home!

And eventually the people attacking those villages stop being happy with attacking villages, or run out of targets and go other places. Given the chance to kill them there, or have them go somewhere a lot more people could die, I'd rather see the bad guys die there. Or we can bring all the troops home, and suddenly everywhere in the world will be peaceful and get along, and we'll save billions and go to Mars, and the world will stop warming.

Yeah ... it sort'a-kind'a did.

Think you can you get San Diego to declare me a Domestic T-bone the same way San Fran did?

Alcohol abuse in Iraq, where they banned drinking. Drinking is understood. A raging alcohol induced party, insulting their host country isn't.
